II.    RESPONSE TO GEPA 417(a)
A.    Goals and Objectives

During FY 1984, the program went through a major change of focus as a re-
sult of revised legislation. Effects of this change are reflected in
grants made in FY 1984.

The Department's first priority is to provide funds to ensure that States
will have the necessary capability to provide appropriate services to
those deaf-blind children for whom they are not required to make available
a free appropriate public education under Part B of the Education of the
Handicapped Act, or some other authority.

The Department's second priority for the use of funds is the provision of
technical assistance to State educational agencies.

Any remaining project funds may be used by grantees to provide supplemen-
tary services to deaf-blind children and youth not covered by the first
priority.relevant projects conducted by the Department
